After a short summer break from reading I’ve been more than happy to get back to fall, winter, spring reading. Summer is hit or miss for getting in a lot of books – this summer was a major miss. I can’t exactly say I’ve had the most riveting list of books read since the summer break, but it’s getting me back in the habit.
One book that really surprised me was Divergent. I got through the almost 500 page book in 3 days. I couldn’t put it down. I can’t say I’ve ever really leaned towards a favorite genre, but right now I’m really into the young adult dystopian novels. The Hunger Games kicked things off a couple years ago and I’m anxiously awaiting Insurgent (the second book in the Divergent series). The third (and final) book in the series Allegiant comes out in October. It’s rare that I’m caught up before the next book comes out so I’m pretty excited!
I’m currently reading The Maze and am about 1/3 of the way finished. This isn’t holding my attention quite the same as others, but it’s still good. I feel that The Maze really is intended for the younger of the Young Adult. Given that it’s not really catching my attention, I’m not convinced that I’ll finish the series. But I also said that about 50 Shades of Grey #sorryimnotsorry
My list of books to read is really long, so I’m looking forward to knocking out a fair number of them over the next 9 months (winter in Chicago lasts until May/June some years). This might be the winter I read all of Jane Austen’s novels… I think it’s time. 🙂
